Episode 194: Common Core week

It was Common Core week at the Idaho Statehouse.
More than 5 ½ hours of discussion in the House Education Committee. No votes ¬— at least not yet.
In this week’s “Extra Credit” podcast, Clark Corbin and Kevin Richert recap two days of contentious hearings, and talk about what to expect next.
Also this week: A historic expulsion vote on the House floor, and a look at a new accountability reporting project.
Check back next week for another “Extra Credit.”
